us tonight. chaos among liberals. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo in just a few moments we will show you some nasty business. liberals attacking liberals, trying to assign blame for the debacle in massachusetts tuesday night. basically it comes down to this. the far left believes president obama is not radical enough. the moderate left believes the far left loons are killing the democratic party. no matter what you believe there is no question the election of scott brown of massachusetts has badly damaged the democratic agenda, especially obama care. >> in its present form, without any change, i don't think it's possible to pass the senate bill in the house. i don't see the votes for it at this time. >> bill: indeed. now for conservatives, this is all great fun. watching the left to descend into turmoil. today the "new york times" published an editorial about the bay state election that is simply hard to believe quote: to our minds it is not remotely a verdict on mr. obama's presidency nor does it amount to a national referendum on health care reform. well

" begins right now. >>> hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. president obama again addresses terrorism and that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo late this afternoon. president once again talked about the failure to stop the underwear bomber on christmas day. the address was supposed to contain sharp analysis, perhaps a firing or two. it did not. instead the president mostly repeated his opinion that the federal counterterrorism operation pretty much failed across the board, but no individuals will be held responsible. >> now at this stage in the review process, it appears that this incident was not the fault of a single individual or organization, but rather a systemic failure across organizations and agencies. >> can we have a moratorium on systemic failure, please? i don't want to hear it. do you want to hear it again? no one wants to hear that again. it may be true. we've heard it 5,000 times. all right. then the president we want on to state the obvious, that america is at war with al-qaeda. >> let's be clear about what this moment demands.
